Cauldron RHO Override. Tramplers are basically bulls that have access to fire attacks. You will always find them in herds, so you will always be fighting more than one at a time. Despite the overwhelming numbers sometimes, they have one glaring weakness that is rather easy to exploit, the large processing unit on their bellies. Hitting these with enough damage will cause them to explode, not only dealing great damage to the targeted Trampler, but also setting fire to anything in the vicinity. Its main body is weak to freeze and its horns are also a weak spot.

Being modeled after a bull, it’s not surprising to learn that Tramplers can charge at you, so you don’t want to be caught off-guard. You will want to be careful, though, as this charge attack is accompanied by a fire trail. It also has another charging attack, where it will continually charge around you and trying to use its head to hit. Outside of those, if far enough, it will slam against the ground and send a shockwave at you. Up close, it can charge up and then unleash a fire explosion around its body.
